Ronnie and the Sacraments

This splendid book was published in 1947, to introduce Anglican boys and girls to the meaning of those symbolic, faith-related acts known as sacraments....

It's tempting to smirk at the Glen Baxter-ish glory of the (unattributed - tsk!) illustrations.

But one can't helped being touched by the straightforward earnestness of the text - and by the clarity of explanation mediated through the Blytonesque narrative.

Having said all that, one slightly yearns for the debut single of indie band Ronnie and the Sacraments....
